Character, Culture and Values Conference 2015 – Glasgow 15th – 16th June
“Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”
Martin Luther King, 1947
What kind of people does the world need?
…and what kind of world do people need?
‘Character, Culture and Values’ is an international conference to be hosted by Character Scotland and partners in Glasgow on 15th and 16th June 2015. It will be the first event of its kind in Scotland, designed to explore and build on the continuing global shift towards character and values-based education.
There are many ‘Questions of Character’ to explore during this event: How do we learn to be human, and why is this important? How do we empower people and communities to make the most of their strengths and values? What are the roles of young people, parents, schools, youth groups and employers in doing so and how are their roles connected? Can these questions help to create a more inclusive, just, sustainable and compassionate world?
This conference aims to provide a platform for wide-ranging and creative discussions focussing on how we can best support young people to deal with the complexities of life, learning and work in the 21st Century. Those in attendance during the event will unpick the concept of character and values education and the idea that all of us have a role to play in working out ‘who we are’ and ‘who we become’. The involvement of young people has been a key part of the process, so they will be well represented at the event.
